It is pageant season, even for less than attractive doggies.
And the winner is….
He is the 2014 World’s Ugliest Dog winner in the event that took place yesterday in Petaluma, Califoria.
Beauty is everywhere - especially when seen from the eyes of the heart.
While Peanut has wild hair, bulging eyes and teeth that a dentist would like to get ahold of, his owner Holly Chandler, loves him just the way he is.
She thinks he’s just beautiful.
Peanut is happy and in wonderful health, but it wasn't always that way.
You see, Peanut was serious burned as a puppy, resulting is bald patches all over his body.
Chandler hopes that Peanut’s notarity will raise awareness about animal abuse.
"We're trying to use him as a poster child for what can happen to animals who are abused," she said.
Chandler will use the $1,500 prize money to pay other animals' veterinary bills.
The contest is in its 26th year.
